Pirata Morgan beats Cibernetico (kind of), Coliseo, lineups

IWRG (THU) 09/16 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Mixteco Jr.Super Halcon Jr.
2) Brazo Metalico & Dinamic BlackImposible & Nemesis
3) Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Magia NegraEragon, Freelance, Hijo del Pantera
4) Dr. CerebroDecnnis [IWRG IC WELTER]
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Año 2000 Jr., Oficial 911, Pirata Morgan, Trauma ICibernético, Espíritu, Gato Eveready, Silver King, Último Gladiador [cibernetico]

Main event came down to Cibernetico and Pirata Morgan, when Silver King decided he’d be okay with losing as long as he got to attack Ciberentico. Pirata Morgan got a better trophy for winning this random cibernetico than Volador got for winning his tournament.

Decnnis gave Cerebro credit for winning and offered him a spot in La Milita again. Dr. Cerbero said no, so Decnnis’ new idea is a match between the Militia and the Terrible Cerebros where Dr. Cerbero has to join AAA if he loses. I’ve never heard of a scarier stipulation.

Freelance and Comando Negro are feuding and setting up a hair vs mask match. In IWRG, that’s a pretty even battle.

CMLL (SUN) 09/19 Arena Coliseo [@cmllmagazine]
1) Apocalipsis & ZaycoBengala & Principe
2) Metálico, Molotov, SenseiDurango Kid, Escorpion, Inquisidor
3) Mascarita Dorada, Shockercito, Último DragoncitoPequeño Black Warrior, Pequeño Nitro, Pierrothito
4) Misterioso II, Pólvora, Sangre AztecaDelta, Diamante, Valiente
5) Brazo de Plata, Strong Man, Toscano DQ Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero

Not a lot of details on the show. Tecnicos won in straight falls. DQ not explained but, since there are no masks to pull, it was probably a foul. Edit: Brazo de Plata replaced Maximo. There may have been a comedy bit or two in that match.

Dorada wrestled in a festive outfit and without boots. Sensei was the Tony Rivera replacement.

As usual, saving AAA results for the full report to come. There were a couple articles about Heroes Inmortales matches, but I think they might be clearer once AAA puts up it’s report. The only big news, I believe, is they teased a Cibernetico turn, but it also reads like an obvious fakeout.

The newest SuperLuchas says Jushin Lyger finishes up on the 10/01. (Probably Yoshihashi on the same date.) CMLL’s never had him defend the middleweight title while in Mexico, though they could still set something up this Friday for a title match next Friday. The magazine also says Mascara Dorada & Sombra will head to Japan for a week in November, which should be NJPW’s Junior Tag League from 11/09 to 11/13. They should do well. Hopefully Valiente still gets to return sometime with his actual gear.

Volador is ready for a mask match with Mistico. He better be prepared to wait a bit.

Tercera Caida says the main event of Thursday’s Perros del Mal show – Perro/Halloween/Damain vs Mesias/Wagner/Booker T – will air tomorrow on the Perros weekly TV.

The SportsNavi article says Ayumi will return in 2011. Cesar has the women’s as best of the night.

Virus is the king of the super minis, submitting Demus in 6:42

In between the Strong Man match and the lightning match, CMLL brought out Panico, Ringo Mendoza, Tony Salazer, Lizmark, el Halcon, Mocho Cota, Fishamn, Satanico, Sangre Chicana and Cien Caras as past heroes of the bicentennial. There was also a moment of applause for La Fiera.

Strong Man was dressed as Hulk Hogan.

Invasors/Peste Negra match seemed to set up a Negro Casas/Charly Manson hair match this week. That match keeps changing. DQ was for Psicosis hitting Rey Bucanero with the ringside stairs

After a long match, Volador won completely clean with a backcracker. Rudo or tecnico, Mistico still has not been able to beat Volador Jr. in Mexico City. Satanico and Ringo Mendoza gave Volador the trophy for winning, and Volador publicly thanked Satanico for training him.

@cmllmagazine had the building 85% full.

CMLL’s Twitter says they’re on at 3pm today.

DJ Spectro has video of Los Guerreros vs Los Infernales from 09/30/83.

The Gladiators have interviews with Charlie Haas & Miss Jackie (who plans on bringing Shelton Benjamin in; WON mentioned a 11/06 show with Haas/Benjamin/??? vs Konnan/Damian/Halloween in Tijuana) and Booker T (who says he’s gotten an offer to wrestle a lot more often in Mexico and plans on taking it, if he can fit in his schedule.)

Is there something up with Trauma II and IWRG? He hasn’t been there since June 20th (90 days), while his brother is a regular and his father is there a bit too.

Arkangel confirmed he’s working the Nosawa/Mil Mascaras show in Japan on Ras de Lona. Mocha Cota & Sangre Chicana were on talking about La Fiera (and the footage they used was him wrestling Ultimo Dragon in Japan?)

Mini Olimpico’s rudo turn has made it to Arena Mexico. This is Escorpion’s return here.

Hey look an Invasors vs Pesta Negra match. They’ve done this match now 6 out of the last 7 weeks (they did it on Sunday the other week.) Still no progression.

IWRG (SUN) 10/03 Arena Naucalpan
1) Fabi Apache & Mascarita Divina vs Mini Abismo Negro & Sexy Star

This was the show originally scheduled for Arena Lopez Mateos, but has been moved here.

Booker T joins Perros del Mal, Oriental wins Scorpio’s hair

Black Terry Jr.

Bulletin: Chat, tonight, 8:30 pm CST. Talking about Mistico/Volador.

PdM (THU) 09/16 Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), SuperLuchas, WagnerMania, Estrellas del Ring, R de Rudo]
1) Dinastía b Low Rider
2) Black Fire b Naruto
3) Jennifer Blake & Mini Chessman b Celestial & Miss Jackie
4) Bestia 666, Pesadilla, Ragde b Aerostar, Pimpinela Escarlata, Súper Fly
5) Hernandez, Super Crazy, X-Fly DRAW Charlie Haas, Extreme Tiger, Jack Evans
6) Damián 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Halloween b Booker T, Dr. Wagner Jr., El Mesías

It seems like everyone on the internet went to the Perros show (and then, maybe another one.)

AAA main event; everyone did their moves, then Konnan showed up to upstage everything. Konnan offered Booker a spot in Los Perros del Mal and gave him a edecan (Linavis, the one who’s on CMLL’s 52/FOX shows every weekend) to seal the deal. While Wagner tried to convince Booker T not to take the deal, Perro beat Mesias to win the match. Booker turned on Dr. Wagner after the match, taking Wagner’s mask and joining the Perros. SuperLuchas says Booker will be back for Heroes Inmoratles IV in a couple weeks.

Semifinal ended on a double pin. Super Crazy had Tiger up in the tapatia, leaned him forward, and both guys were down for three. Not much said about Charlie Haas. Wrong promotion for that guy.

Bestia fouled Pimpi and Hijo de Tirantes fast counted a pin.

Celestial was hurt in his match. R de Rudo says he tried a Shooting Star Press, and notes Celestial continually gets hurt trying this.

In his latest column, Perro Aguayo Jr. again says he doesn’t care about who wins or loses in his match with Mesias, but wants to leave Mesias humiliated. That seems to telegraph the finish for Verano.

OILL (THU) 09/16 Arena Azteca Budokan [SuperLuchas, Estrellas del Ring]
4) Hijo de LA Park & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. b Kung Fu Jr. & Ultramán Jr. [torneo de parejas juniors bicentenario, semifinal]
5) el Hijo del Canek & Fishman Jr. b El Hijo del Solitario & Hijo del Lizmark [torneo de parejas juniors bicentenario, semifinal]
6) Hijo de LA Park & Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr. b el Hijo del Canek & Fishman Jr. [torneo de parejas juniors bicentenario, final]
7) Scorpio Jr. L Marco Corleone and Black Warrior and Juventud Guerrera and Oriental and Charly Manson and Zumbido [cage, hair]

How fortunate: in the arena run by the Morenos, Hijo de LA Park & Hijo del Dr. Wagner (son of Rossy Moreno) won the tag team tournament, and Scorpio lost his hair to Oriental. Didn’t have Scorpio as losing, because he and Warrior (first one out) were not actually listed in this match beforehand. Both Mini Oriental and Mini Scorpio climbed in the cage to help their taller versions, but Scorpio took an accidental chair shot from Mini Scorpio, costing him them the match.

Today’s preview of the Bicentennial Final from CMLL Pekes: how Volador & Mistico got here, and hype for the final. Sneer = evil.

Hijo de Anibal/ACM via Multimedios

SuperLuchas wonders What Happened To The New Vipers? This seems to expose the author of not watching AAA, because anyone who saw the Vipers vs La Secta match knows what happened to the Vipers.

To actually answer the question, I’m pretty sure Amnesia got cut (no AAA matches since May, on indy shows using the same gimmick, wonder if AAA’s sued him yet) and Histeria is so far off TV that he might have been cut or hurt and we won’t find out about it for months. The reality is the Vipers were a product of the ’97-’08 AAA, and the people steering the ship have no love, nostalgia or even memory for anything that took place in that era. The gimmicks were given out not because there was a plan, but just to maintain the trademark (and that still may not have totally worked.)

AAA hypes up Sunday’s taping: LA Park returns (first TV match since Verano), talks to Silver King about who exactly he and Ultimo Gladiador are going to face this weekend if 187 is really fired from AAA (no one’s bought into this stip, Silver King included – he says he’s going to beat whomeer) and notes Esther Moreno’s return.

Lo Mejor de Lucha Libre starts a one hour radio this Monday to Saturday show. You can listen here.

Bicentennial, Lucha Libre USA

Today is Mexico’s Bicentennial, celebrating 200 years since the country declared independence. Being Thursday, this makes it a four day weekend of celebrations. Today, there are four significant shows around Mexico City. AAA and CMLL are not running their own major shows, but they’re contributing to others:

  • Perros del Mal return to their home of Sala de Armas Magdalena Mixhuca with AAA & ex-WWE wrestlers appearing. Main event is the front line Perros del Mal team of Damian 666, Halloween and Perro Jr. vs Dr. Wagner Jr., Mesias and Booker T. This should be taped for TVC Deportes.
  • AULL: benefit show for Hombra Bala in Arena Lopez Mateos, with a main event of Mascara, Sombra and Volador vs Averno, Mephisto and Ephesto. There’s a chance this may turn up on AYM Sports, but no one would be able to find it if it did.
  • IWRG has it’s usual Thursday night show, also featuring AAA luchadors (in a ten man cibernetico with IWRG wrestlers.) Decnnis and Dr. Cerbero fight over a title with the name “WWF” in it. This will air on TVC Deportes on Monday.
  • The Morenos/Invasors group (“Organización Independiente de Lucha Libre” – eh) runs Arena Azteca Budokan with Marco, Lizmark, Juvi, Oriental, Zumbido and Charly in an electrified cage. Zumbido seems the likely loser.

There’s also dozens more smaller ones around the country.

Lucha Libre USA is continuing to run shows. They’ve announced a show for Amarillo, Texas on 10/24. Tickets go on sale this Saturday. Can’t find anything about ticket prices, except a mention of +$25 for VIP. The building seats about 5,000. It’s a good sign for this promotions continued existence that they’re just not vanishing “until Season 2.”

Check on this schedule for next week around Chicago, just for two promotions

09/25 6pm: Dragon Gate USA @ Congress Theater, Chicago
09/26 2pm: Dragon Gate USA @ The Miramar Theater, Milwaukee
09/26 3pm: LuchaMania (LA Park, Dr. Wagner and sons) @ Sturtevant Sports Complex, Sturtevant, WI
09/26 7pm: LuchaMania @ Congress Theater, Chicago

Sturtevant is about a half hour south of Milwaukee, a half hour closer to Chicago. With Chicago traffic, that may be a two hour drive on Sunday, so the main eventers are probably showing up in Chicago during the show or that show is going to be late. (Answer: that show is going to be late.) Really thinking of going to both Dragon Gate shows and the Sunday night LuchaMania show as much for the entertainment as for the fun of making all three.

    CMLL on LATV #19 (09/04/2010)

    Arena Mexico, 08/06/2010

    Tzuki victorious

    Eléctrico, Fantasy, Tzuki vs Pequeño Nitro, Pequeño Universo 2000, Pequeño Violencia: Hooray, Tzuki! Rest of the tecnicos looked good and felt this was actually better then the lineup looked. Maybe no Demus in the minis minis better things for Pequeno Violencia?

    Blue Panther, Sagrado, Toscano vs Felino, Shigeo Okumura, Vangelis: this was about as much as I thought (none) with a DQ finish that didn’t go anywhere. This seems to happen all the time with Blue Panther. Hmm.

    09/18-19 Lucha Times

    box

    AAA-US: AAA invades IWRG and vice/versa. Oficials and Air Force debate the proper jurisdictions of federal and municipal keepers of the peace, Silver King & Ultimo Gladiador defend their tag titles, Billy Boy and Decnnis “are in the main event.”

    52MX: Assuming last week was a one off change (???), this is the poorly reviewed women’s match from Sunday and Mistico/Strong Man/Valiente vs Terrible/Texano/Volador

    LATV: Solidly in the period where the main show is airing 4 matches a week, so every week has a repeat if they don’t start showing openers. New match here is Fuego/Stuka/Valiente vs Misterioso/Okumura/Yoshihashi.

    GDL: back on track? Sangre/Okumura/Yoshihashi vs Angels/Rush + Atlantis/Neibla vs Maximo/Porky. Feel free to skip over this week.

    —————

    CMLL: Mistico vs Volador, surely, and more Pesta Negra vs Invasors

    AAA: the taping that just happened yesterday. The end of 187?

    CMLL FOX: Averno vs Charly Manson, for some sort of title belt.

    C3: the taping that just happened yesterday. Atlantis/UG/Felino vs Panther/Dorada/Toscano, Averno/Lyger/Okumura vs Metro/Sagrado/Valiente

    Puebla: tag title match, Panther/Sombra/Sagrado vs Averno/Lyger/Mephisto

    ACM: maybe the 09/06 matches?

    Perros: Not sure. They may be able to air part of tomorrow’s taping (that’s IWRG’s schedule – is TVCDeportes taping two shows tomorrow?) and the ad for next week’s show certainly implied that was the plan, and even that they were going to air the main event (which seems unlikely.) They did have a show in between at Arena Aficion, but I don’t know if they taped that. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was AAA footage.

    IWRG: the taping that just happened tomorrow. Wait. Decnnis vs Dr. Cerebro for a title belt. I’m sure there must be many I’m missing, but a quick search in the match finder says this is the first singles match Decnnis has ever had. Surely the first TV match. Another AAA vs IWRG main event.

    ——–

    CMLL-TFN (Canada): Metro vs Euforia, Sombra/Volador/Valiente vs Texano/Terrible/Mephisto, NoLimit/Okumura vs Warrior/Mistico/UG. They’re still a couple weeks out of the hair match, so I assume they’re strongly into the period where Black Warrior didn’t care much anymore.

    AAA-Peru: 187 teams with Konnan, which makes the turn official. It’s funny, I just got done watching Verano de Escandalo, where 187 finally puts Konnan thru a table. Outside of the tag title change, nothing else meaningful has happened in this storyline in the four months in between. Also, WagnerManiacos vs Chessman/Kenzo/Zorro.

    AAA on Televisa #954 (09/04/2010)

    Plaza de Toros La Concorida, Orizaba, Veracruz, 08/14/2010

    Alex Koslov, Christina Von Eerie, Sexy Star vs Aerostar, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache where the AAA Reinas de Reinas Championship & AAA Mixed Tag Titles On The Line: I was surprised about the finish, only because I could have sworn the finishing move mentioned at the time wasn’t a powerbomb. The match was good, the Aerostar dive was very bad looking (and since they may never show it again, it’s over here) and I hope they never do it again.

    Heavy Metal & Octagón vs Electroshock & Último Gladiador: Every single chair/head shot in this feud really sticks out in the current climate of concussion concerns. Maybe they’re doing it safely and I haven’t noticed, but I’m thinking no. Anyway, points to Heavy Metal for hitting a guy with a guitar and then deciding he needs to do the family’s rollup to clinch the win. This seemed pretty much the end of this feud, but probably not.

    Dr. Wagner Jr. vs Silver King vs Vampiro for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship: Crowd sounded so much louder on Dos De Tres’ video than on the TV. I wouldn’t need to see this match ever again, but it was okay for a three way and I had no problems with Vampiro this time around. Apparently, Vampiro’s strict moral code allows for all sorts of beatings before and after a match, but he must keep it clean while the match is in progress (except for when he walked in that match in the Yucatan to attack Wagner, oops.)

    The post match was seriously melodramatic but I think the people bought it? Maybe?

    Torreon, tag titles, Lyger demands a mask, GDL

    Full results from this show. Silver King retained his title, Sexy Francis lost his hair. Building looks about half full.

    Edit: This is the first successful (and recorded) IWRG IC Heavyweight Championship defense in 4 years.

    CMLL (MON) 09/13 Arena Puebla [SuperLuchas, Fuego en el Ring]

    5) Héctor Garza & Mr. Águila b Máscara Dorada & Místico [CMLL TAG]

    Rudos threw a fit when Tirantes wasn’t the ref for the main event, and threatened to walk out if there wasn’t a change. There was, and the tecnicos now tried to walk out, but Tirantes started to count them out. Tecnicos came back, won the first fall, and lost the second fall to a quick count. Tirantes slow counted the tecnicos and fast counted the rudos pin in the third fall. Mistico and Mascara Dorada kidnapped the tag belts from the commissioner (who had upheld Tirantes decision) and refused to give them back, demanding a rematch. Garza said they’d have to get back in line for a shot.

    Sombra beat Lyger, who was ticked. Lyger pulled off Sombra’s mask and attacked him after the match.

    CMLL (TUE) 09/14 Arena Mexico [@cmllmagazine, Fuego en el Ring, Cesar]
    1) Horus & Robin b Disturbio & Semental

    3) Ayumi, Goya Kong, Luna Mágica b Amapola, Mima Shimoda, Tifany
    4) Averno, Jushin Lyger, Shigeo Okumura b Metro, Sagrado, Valiente
    5) Atlantis, Felino, Último Guerrero b Blue Panther, Máscara Dorada, Toscano

    Felino, in as a replacement for Volador Jr., pinned his old rival Mascara Dorada clean. Volador being MIA before his big match on Friday is concerning.

    Toscano was in Shocker’s spot (and Sagrado was in Toscano’s in the semimain), so that’s two straight shows Shocker has missed. The story is Shocker has a knee injury. CMLL.com’s page doesn’t have the update as I’m writing it, but news articles (using CMLL PR) have La Mascara in Shocker’s spot for Friday.

    Rudos not only won the semimain, but yanked off all the masks of the tecnicos afterwards. Lyger declared he would not leave Mexico without winning a mask. Uh oh. I wonder if the Metro sponsorship is about up.

    Tecnicas won their match despite Luna Magica leaving a bit early; she was having problems breathing. Goya flattened Amapola & Tiffany on the outside, and Ayumi pinned Mima with a german suplex. Said to be better than Sunday’s woman’s match.

    CMLL (TUE) 09/14 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]

    4) Hijo del Fantasma, La Sombra, Strong Man b Mephisto, Mr. Águila, Mr. Niebla
    5) Dragón Rojo Jr., Misterioso II, Sangre Azteca b Gallo, Metal Blanco, Rush

    Something happened here, because they flipped the top two matches and Gallo replaced Palacio Negro (boooooo). Poder Mexica won all three falls, just getting excessive violence in the second match.

    Strong Man was too strong for the rudos. Angelo replaced Astaroth.

    Heroes del Ring bios: Rocky Romero (“he has developed a reputation as a relentless fighter by dominating ¨Anything-Goes¨ tournaments all over the world”) and Marco Corleone.

    US: 10/02

    Octagoncito retained the minis title, with both seconds (Mini Charly & Mini Psicosis) getting involved.

    Parka and Joaquin discussed the Legion getting the best of AAA lately, with Parka blaming Joaquin for Dorian. Joaquin said to trust him. Joaquin made a couple matches for Heroes: a cage match between the AAA Army and the Milita (no specifics) and a Parka/Cibernetico tag match against The Best of La Sociedad, though that was up to Cibernetico to agree.

    Tiger & Relampago had no issues as a team. They still lost, Relampago taking a top rope powerbomb for Tiger Cota. With Relampago out of it, Decnnis threw Tiger into the front row.

    Alex got Pimpinela with a spinning DDT to take that match. After, Elegido talked about wanting to win the Copa Antonio Pena and also have a apuesta match with anyone in the Militas. The Stones accepted, but we’re waiting for a contract signing.

    Before the semimain, Dorian decreed 187 would be kicked out of AAA if they used a weapon, while the Legion team would not. I’m behind on AAA TV, so maybe I’ve yet to see the skit where they explain who has power when. (Probably not.) Anyway, rudos brought in a bat, Lider got a hold of it, and used for the DQ. Presumably, 187 is out of AAA. The Legion stormed the ring, Damian hitting the tecnicos with a shovel. At some point here, Lider was thrown thru a table, and the rudos poured the contents of a Draino bottle on Nicho. Tiger, Laredo, Relampago and Elegido tried to make the save, but the Militia cut them off. Parka & Mesias were able to break thru to make the save.

    Main event included lots of brawling and Perro Aguayo bleeding. Alex and the Militia tried to get involved, but Joaquin warned them of the 90 day suspension and they back off. Cibernetico chokeslammed Damian 666 for the pin. Joaquin sent security to force the Perros from the ring, and then asked Cibernetico if he was with them. Cibernetico shook hands and the AAA Army celebrated on the ramp.

    Cibernetico was still promising the return of Los Bizarros in an interview with Dos de Tres.

    Next taping is Sunday, and could be the last taping before Hereos Inmortales. That card looks like

    • El Hijo de Perro Aguayo vs Mesias
    • Silver King vs Dr. Wagner Jr. (c) [AAA HEAVY]
    • La Parka & Cibernetico vs La Sociedad (maybe LA Park & Zorro?)
    • Torneo de Antonio Pena (includes Elegido, whatever Legion guys who aren’t in the other matches, Vampiro?)
    • Militia vs AAA [cage] (Air Force? Super Fly’s turn?)
    • probably something with the women
    • maybe Jack defends his title?

    Elegido & ? vs Los Bello Stones gets held off for Guerra de Titanes.

    They’ve had 6 or 7 matches on this show previously, so that’s about it. The top 5 matches have all been made clear (even if the participants have not), so they’re doing better than the last show.

    IWRG, Garza & Aguila retain, Jarrett, Chile

    La Primera de Puebla

    AAA Wagner (SUN) 09/12 Plaza de Toros de Torreon Coahuila [AAA]
    3) Silver King b Dr. Wagner Jr. and El Mesías [IWRG HEAVY]

    I thought this was for the AAA heavyweight title, but AAA says it was for IWRG’s. Silver King won by beating his brother, which Silver King says would happen again if they meet at Hereos Inmortales.

    Mascara Dorada & Mistico had matching outfits, but not enough to get the tag titles. No full results, but Garza & Aguila retained with help from Tirantes.

    AAA tapes tonight in Tlalnepantla. Octagoncito defends the minis title against Mini Histeria, Extreme Tiger & Relampago try to co-exist and the main event is a sort of rematch from Verano. They teased Electroshock and the rest of the Maniacos making The Decision tonight, though they’re not on the card. I suspect they’re taking their talents to La Sociedad anyway. (And I think that joke has expired already.)

    SuperLuchas says Jeff Jarrett will be in Mexico from 09/26 to 28 on behalf of TNA. No mention of which company he’s here to talk to, but I’d presume AAA.

    It is the WWF Welterweight championship on the line on Thursday in IWRG.

    Heroes en el Ring has bios of Espectro Jr. (who sounds like either the big boss at the end or a secret opponent; cool either way) and Gronda (who needs to be quoted)

    Although his apparent physical strength would seem to indicate otherwise, Gronda´s wrestling style is not purely about power. This giant also possesses the ability to construct precise attacks while counteracting the advances of his enemies. Size however does play a part in his game plan. Due to his impressive stature, Gronda often simply exhausts his opponents into submission due to the colossal physical effort which is required to move him.

    Okay, I buy that last part.

    Mistico, Shocker, Super Porky vs Volador, Texano, Terrible headlines a show in Austin, TX on 10/03. Tickets go on sale Friday.
